    It's certainly a worthy cause. I joined your team a few days ago and just got credit for my first set of completed projects. Working on my 2nd batch now.

    The software is very well done and I really can't tell it's even running on my computer. Very easy to install too.

    I know I saw you post it somewhere but how many years have you been a member?

    10 years - then about seven years ago they switched to a new platform BOINC. So three years on the old platform and seven on the new.

    On my new machine I allow it to run 24/7 and have 100GB of storage (I'll never use the full TB on the hard drive).

    Will be buying another new machine, hopefully identical to this one, in the next week or so - World Community Grid will be installed on it as well.

    Thanks for contributing!
